This weekend Starz decided to stoke up a little fan-frenzy for its forthcoming horror-comedy series Ash vs Evil Dead by releasing a 3-minute-long (NSFW) trailer into the wild. Despite the presence of Bruce Campbell in the lead role, and co-writing credits for Sam and Ivan Raimi, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this small-screen sequel to Army of Darkness… but if the series turns out to be as funny and thrilling as this trailer suggests, then it should be well worth the wait!*
For the benefit of this blog, there’s also a number of notable actresses on the cast-list, including Lucy Lawless, Jill Marie Jones, Mimi Rogers and Dana DeLorenzo (who makes a great eye-rolling, deadpan foil for Ash in the trailer), so hurrah for them!
* Sadly the show doesn’t actually hit the “airwaves” until October… dammit!
